painted floral mandala t-shirt

Use fabric paint to create beautiful and bright personalised designs on shirts, pouches or even a tote!
Step 1

First, place cardboard inside your shirt to prevent pint from seeping through to the back.

Step 2

Click here to download and print the template, then cut out each shape.

Step 3

Trace the largest shape onto your shirt with a water-soluble marking pencil.

Step 4

Paint the shape with white fabric paint for a base layer. Let dry and paint another coat. Let dry, then paint green. Let dry.
TIP: The white paint serves as a base and will allow the fabric paint to pop against the darker shirt.

Step 5

Trace the next size shape on top of the first layer and paint with fabric paint. Let dry.

Step 6

Repeat Step 5 with each shape, working from largest to smallest. Let each paint dry completely between each layer.

Step 7

Use the assorted stylus tools to add dots in various sizes with white paint. Let dry.
TIP: Allow paint to cure for 72 hours before washing.
